I adjusted this Apple Bang! Recipe for the Housewarming party of My friends Noel and Kim Henneman:
Craig’s Apple Bang!
1½ oz Laird’s AppleJack Apple Brandy
1 oz Apple Juice
1 oz Apfelkorn
¼ oz Mulling Syrup*
Shake well with cracked ice and pour into chilled cocktail glass rimmed with cinnamon sugar.
* Mulling Syrup:
2 Tbsp Freshly ground Allspice
1 Tbsp Freshly ground Ceylon Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Freshly grated/pulverized Cassia Cinnamon
1 Tsp Freshly grated Nutmeg
½ tsp Powdered Ginger
2 Whole Cloves
¼ Cup 151-proof Rum
1 Cup Water
2 Cups Sugar
Add all spices to Rum in a sealable container (I use mason jars). Shake and leave to extract/steep for at least one day. Prepare a simple syrup and add to spice/151 mixture and let steep for at least one day. Strain twice: Once through wire mesh, once through double layer of cheesecloth to remove particulate.
